I live abroad and from time to time fancy watching some TV in English.

Recently DH and I have been addicted to enjoyed 24, Dexter and The Wire.

Would love some suggestions of other things to watch, especially any British series (so DH doesn't develop such an American accent wink ). They don't have to be police/murder style programmes, in fact a bit of comedy might be nice. Or some drama.

So, what do you recommend, oh wise MNs?

um being human?

LouLovesAeroplaneJelly Mon 14-Sep-09 21:33:09

Can't help with British shows but am curently addicted to NCIS, Bones and The Mentalist.

Cies Mon 14-Sep-09 21:33:18

ooh, that looks good. smile

bigchris Mon 14-Sep-09 21:33:44

Teachers is good

wintera Mon 14-Sep-09 21:33:46

Yes I was going to say Being Human too. It's very good indeed!

Cies Mon 14-Sep-09 21:34:19

Yup to Bones and The Mentalist (watch those on Spanish TV). WIll look up NCIS.

I bought the Spooks boxed sets in a closing down sale, dh and I became totally addicted, it was dreadful when we were on the last box and knew it was all going to end soon!

Cies Mon 14-Sep-09 21:36:42

I think I remember watching some Teachers. Will see if there are more seasons out now. All good suggestions so far - thanks.

How about Spooks?

Agree re Gavin & Stacey

Cies Mon 14-Sep-09 21:52:49

Been gone 6 years! We get lots of American series on TV here, but no British ones.

OK, so Gavin and Stacey (DH may not get this, I feel...)

That's two votes for the Inbetweeners.

I've definitely put Spooks on the list.

Heroes looks good too.

Let me google Peep Show.

Another for Gavin and Stacey but they will only last you a few nights. Shameless?

I know you asked for British but we've really enjoyed The Soprano's. Just finished The Wire ourselves and are going to move onto ER then poss The West Wing.

Ewe Mon 14-Sep-09 21:56:00

Halfway through The West Wing - not English, but absolutely brilliant. Along the same theme, what about something like yes minister?

JustBe Mon 14-Sep-09 21:59:04

Recent ones me an DP have really enjoyed are The Shield, Breaking Bad, and a couple of British ones Ideal, Lead Balloon and Gavin and Stacey, Saxondale, Psychoville

CarGirl Mon 14-Sep-09 22:00:04

Skins

Shameless

sherby Mon 14-Sep-09 22:00:28

Inbetweeners is v funny

Gavin and Stacey

If you don't mind American, then I hugely recommend The Sopranos <best series ever>

MissTFied Mon 14-Sep-09 22:00:33

Love Peep Show and The Inbetweeners.

I know you want British, but I was really impressed by The Sopranos. I wish there were more episodes!

preciouslillywhite Mon 14-Sep-09 22:00:53

Nathan Barley

Peep Show (again)

Mighty Boosh

Curb

Trying to think of some serious draaaaaaama, but can't (not since This Life, at any rate.) Christ, I am a nidiot smile

sherby Mon 14-Sep-09 22:01:10

Agree Saxondale is so funny

Cies Mon 14-Sep-09 22:01:49

I think I might have to put The West Wing on the list - so many people have recommended it over the years, but I've never got round to watching it.
